Juvenile Delinquency in Nodaway, MO
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Nodaway County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Missouri often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 254 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Nodaway County. Of that total, 6% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 15 court cases. Another 54% were dependency cases that accounted for 136 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Nodaway County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Nodaway County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
